Good story except that I wish the heroine would be a little bit more mature in her behavior instead of constantly being ruled by self-doubt about the intentions of the hero. Still a good quick read.

I don't care for the heroine in this story....way too much crying. Seems to be blowing hot and cold throughout the book. Certainly not my favorite book by this author.

One of Linda Howard's best love story about how Dee Swann holds onto Angel Creek even knowing that it stood between her and the man she loves, Lucas Cochran, who desperately needs the water from her homestead for his cattle. Their passion and trust will be tested before their love could be claimed. I really enjoyed this wonderful story.

Even before the space transport Outrigger docked on research station Einstein, Barbary had heard about an alien ship that was moving into the solar system.

Some believed the vessel was drifting aimlessly, others were sure it was under conscious control. Either way, the team of scientists aboard Outrigger were prepared to investigate.

Their mission did not involve a passenger named Barbary. Yet she - and more importantly, the pet cat she smuggled on board - were about to play key roles in man's first contact with alients...

Inspite of his suspicions, he still fell for her and now he has to face the challenge of whether to turn her in or not and put away the woman he loves. Good easy read and hot romance.

When Aleea NaDeera registered with Illusions, she was hoping for a little excitement in her otherwise dull daily routine. But she forgot the old adage of being careful what you ask for!

In order to save his people, Prince Raeder Darkeen needs to mate with his perfect genetic match, and Aleea is it. Only it's more than duty as Raeder and Aleea partake of the red-hot passion burning between them. But when Aleea feels it's time to end the fantasy, Raeder has other plans - like keeping her by his side forever. And Aleea is beginning to realize that in order to be Raeder's woman, she must be willing to sacrifice everything, even her life!


Darwin, Marx, Wagner: Critique of a Heritage
Review Date: 10/17/2006
Helpful Score: 1


One of the great turning points in modern history cam ein 1859 when Darwin's "Origin of Species," Marx's "Critique of Political Economy", and Wagner's "Tristan and Isolde" made their first appearance. As THE scientist, THE sociologist, and THE artist of the late 19th century, Darwin, Marx and Wagner dominate the epoch, and their theories epitomize a century of thought which continues, as a single stream of influence, down to the present day.

Emerging out of an era of Romanticism and flowering in an age of "scientific thought," their "mechanical materialism" expresses the prevalent conception of matter as the source and substance of the universe. Feeling, beauty, and moral values are mere illusions in a world of fact, and the human will is powerless against the ineluctable laws if nature and society.

The ideas, the methods, the triumphs of this materialism over the flexible and humane pragmatism of the Romantics have, according to Professor Barzun, been the source of the 20th century's characteristic problems. Nor is the process completed; under the pressure of new facts and new insights, we are now threatened with a swing away from materialism to an equally dangerous idealism, or even worse, to an explosive irrationalism.

It is therefore of the utmost importance that we re-examine the lives and works of Darwin, Marx, and Wagner, as well as their imitators and detractors, their friends and enemies, their forerunners and followers, in an effort to understand the origins and impact of their points of view. Only then can we hope to make a fresh start toward a working ideal for the Western mind.
